This is what i have come up with, but the question you are asking isnt clear?
Are we treating Labour and Rent seperately?
I would presume we treat them as a total figure, therefore:
Dept A = 28,000/Labour Hrs 1,500 = £18.66 OAR as more labour is carried out in that Dept.
Dept B = 2,000/1,050 Mach Hrs = £19.05 OAR as this dept mainly uses Machines.
Also above i have Apportioned Rent & Rates as Follows:
£10,000 / 1,000 (Floor Area) = £10
£10 x 800 (Floor area A) = 8,000
£10 x 200 (Floor Area = 2,000
I hope this is right.
As the question was a bit unclear i have presumed the above to be the most obvious assumptions.0 
i know the question threw me but thtat wasthe question that i was given0
